A Dividend Growth Streak is the number of consecutive calendar years the company has increased their regular dividend for.
Special dividends are not considered when determining the streak length. For instance, if a company pays out a one-time special dividend on top of their regular dividends that results in a higher dividend in the previous year they will not be penalized because of this. The dividend growth streak only focusing on the increases of regular dividends.
The dividend record date based on a calendar year (January to December) is used to determine the dividend growth streak length. There are a variety of different key dividend dates that occur like the dividend record date, payable date, ex-date, and declared date. Because of the timing differences between these dates, it is possible for a company to have a longer or shorter dividend streak based on the payable/ex/declared date, but not on the record date, etc. Something to be aware of.
If the company initiated a dividend it is counted as an increase. For instance, if a company was not paying a dividend and then start this year, their streak would be 1 year.
The dividend streaks are updated annually at the end of the calendar year in December.
To understand how the streaks are calculated let’s look at a few examples.
- Example #1: The company increases the dividend each year at the beginning of the year so the dividend streak is 3 years. This is what most people think of when they think of a dividend streak.
- Example #2: The dividend streak is 3 years despite having only one dividend increase after initiating a dividend in the 1st year. If total regular dividends for the year are more than the previous year, the streak continues.
- Example #3: If the company initiates a dividend, I count that as year one in the dividend streak.
- Example #4: The 2017 total dividends of $1.20 are the same as the prior-year so the dividend streak is 0 years.
The Canadian Dividend All-Star List is updated every month using stock information from the last trading day of the month. It is then emailed to Dividend Growth Investing & Retirement (DGI&R) email subscribers at the beginning of every month.
If you are a new email subscriber, you’ll be emailed a copy of the most recent version after signing up.
No, not one that I maintain.
That said, you can find something similar called the US Dividend Champions List on the Dividend Investing Resource Center.
The Dividend Investing Resource Center also has other international dividend lists like the:
- Eurozone Dividend Champions,
- UK Dividend Champions, and
- Global CCC List.
My website, Dividend Growth Investing & Retirement, and the Canadian Dividend All-Star List do not provide stock recommendations.
I created the Canadian Dividend All-Star List as an information source for dividend investors. The criteria to be on the list is based on the number of years the dividend has increased, it is not based on whether I think the stock is a good investment. Think of this list as a good starting point if you are looking for potential Canadian dividend growth candidates, not stock recommendations.
Can’t understand a column header in the Canadian Dividend All-Star List spreadsheet?
Hover over the header column and read the note that pops up to get a brief explanation.
The difference between the two tabs in the excel file are …
“Canadian Dividend All-Star List” Tab
The stocks in the “Canadian Dividend All-Star List” tab need to have a dividend streak of 5 years or more. i.e. 5 or more years of consecutive annual dividend increases.
The stocks in the “Others” tab pay a dividend and are generally thought to be dividend growth stocks, but there are no specific criteria to be included in the “Others” tab.
Pay particular attention to the number of days since the last recorded dividend increase (column L) as some of these stocks have not increased their dividend for a number of years.
The Canadian Dividend All-Star List was created because I was frustrated with the lack of coverage and data on Canadian dividend growth stocks.
My retirement plan relies on dividend income, so I wanted a resource where I could quickly find strong Canadian dividend growth stocks with dependable dividend income.
I had questions like …
- Which Canadian stocks have increased their dividend for 5, 10, or 25 years in a row?
- Which dividend stocks have high dividend yields, and strong 1, 3, 5, 10, 15, and 20-year dividend growth rates?
- How many recessions has the company been able to increase their dividend through?
- Which Canadian dividend growth stocks look cheap?
- The list goes on …
I couldn’t find what I was looking for, so I created the Canadian Dividend All-Star List (CDASL) and I’ve been sharing it monthly with my readers since 2013.

To create and update the Canadian Dividend All-Star List takes a lot of time and effort, so donations are very much appreciated and always welcome.
Thanks in advance!
While I have tried my best to provide accurate information, I am subject to human error.
Finding the dividend history to four decimal places can be difficult when looking at older payments and considering splits and rounding.
The file contains a mix of information pulled from various sources and data I entered manually. Data entered by myself has come primarily from the company’s investor relations website or their annual reports. The annual reports were taken from the company website or www.sedar.com. In the few instances where I was unable to find the dividend history from the company website or the annual report, I used TMX, Yahoo! Finance, Morningstar, Google Finance, etc. and compared the information. Some of the stock information that is pulled directly from various sources is assumed to be correct, but I have not confirmed this.
I have tried to provide accurate information, but I cannot guarantee the accuracy of the information. You have been warned.
I am happy to share this information with as many individual investors as possible, but this list is not intended to be used for commercial use unless you have received written permission from me.
